NFL.com senior correspondent Gil Brandt put together his list of NFL rookies who he thinks have the best shot at making the Pro Bowl. One of Buffalo’s rookies ranked pretty high.

Brandt had Bills CB Ronald Darby ranked third on his rookie Pro Bowl list with only Oakland’s Amari Cooper and St. Louis’ Todd Gurley ranked higher. Here’s what Brandt had on why he had Darby ranked third in the top 10.

3) Ronald Darby, CB, Buffalo Bills

The second-round pick has 15 pass breakups and has been burned on just 48.4 percent of the balls thrown his way — anything under 50 percent is very good. He’s also chipped in two picks and 44 tackles. He’s physical, can play press coverage, makes flash plays and has good speed. Right now, he’s playing as well as any corner in the league.

Darby is one of just four non-first round picks to make the list.
